Fitness Strength

20 minutes to perform 4-5 rounds:
Push Press x 5 reps
Ball ups x 8-10 reps

Notes:  Build up to the heaviest set possible for the push press, focus on a quality dip, drive and lockout.  For the Ball up, show control up and down.  If you cannot perform the full range of motion try swinging to the top and doing a negative.

Advanced Strength

20 minutes to establish 1 rep max Push Press and 1 rep max Jerk

Notes:  Rest as needed between attempts.  For both movements, practice a good dip/drive position before loading up too heavy.

 Prioritize good footwork on the Jerk.  If you have a poor front rack position, spend extra time in your warmup, cool down and active recovery time to improve that position.
